The B-Vitamin Infusion contains high dosed B-Complex plus Methylcobalamin, one of two coenzymes forms of B12.
Although the Alpha Infusion contains an ample supply of B vitamins, there are certain conditions in which additional IV B-vitamins can be greatly beneficial. The Vitamin B Infusion contains high dosed B-Complex plus methylcobalamin.
Methylcobalamin is one of two coenzymes forms of B12. Cyanocobalamin, the second coenzyme, is the most common form of B12 provided in physician offices and over the counter supplements. Methylcobalamin is the more bio-available of the two, meaning that methylcobalamin is ready for the body to use once infused. Cyanocobalamin must be first broken down within the liver only to produce small amounts of methylcobalamin for the body to use. Methylcobalamin is the only active form of B12 found within the Central Nervous System (CNS). Benefits of Methylcobalamin supplementation include;
- Reduction of elevated Homocysteine. Elevated Homocysteine has been linked to increased cardiovascular risk of disease.
- Alleviate Depression and Improve mood. Methylcobalamin acts as a methyl donor and participates in the synthesis of SAM-e (S- adenosylmethionine), a nutrient that has powerful mood elevating properties.
- Supports Immune system regulation
- Repair of damaged myelin sheath. Myelin is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system.
- Increased metabolic function
- Supports healthy red blood cells and is used to treat Anemia
Japanese scientists have identified a form of vitamin B12 that protects against neurological disease and aging by a unique mechanism that differs from current therapies. Some of the disorders that may be preventable or treatable with this natural vitamin therapy, called methylcobalamin, include Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer’s disease, muscular dystrophy and, neurological aging. Americans have immediate access to this form of vitamin B12, and unlike prescription drugs, it costs very little and is free of side effects. over the last 10 years a number of central and peripheral neurological diseases have been related to a deficiency of a very specific cobalamin, the methylcobalamin form, that is required to protect against neurological diseases and aging. The liver converts a small amount of cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin within the body, but larger amounts of methylcobalamin are necessary to correct neurological defects and protect against aging. Methylcobalamin is a very effective treatment for B12 deficiencies commonly found in patients suffer from disease or have nutritional deficits (such as ultra low calorie diets).
The B-Complex found within this infusion refers all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12). Each member of the B-complex has a unique structure and performs unique functions in the human body. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and biotin participate in different aspects of energy production, vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism, and vitamin B12 and folic acid facilitate steps required for cell division. Each of these vitamins has many additional functions.
